Coi.mniA, December 13.
Colonol Montgomery, president pro tern.,
called the Senate to order to-day nt 12 o'clock,
and to the roll call which followed, only seven
senators answered. This number not constitut
ing a quorum, the president no announced,
wheronpon Jillson moved that the scrgeant-ot
arms be instructed to look up the absent senators
and bring In all he found. This motion wan
carried, end the sergennt-at-arms started out.
After an absence of about twenty minutes, he re
turned and reported that he could find none. The
Senate then, on motion of Haync, adjourned.
I that coin bill.
The bill providing for the payment of the in
terest of the State stocks and bonds in coin Is still
one of the chief topics of discussion. Many of
the Radical members express their disgust nt the
manner in which it was passed in the House, and
do not hesitate to asBert that money was freely
Aiseito Influence the votes of the members. It
MU been stated that the highest amonnt paid for
It vote was two hundred dollars, and the lowest
en dollars.
I It La reported that Governor Scott will veto the
T)ill after It is passed by the Senate, some assert
ing that bis reason for so doing is because he does
not wish to assume the onus of hnvlng favored
It?knowing, however, that it will be paBsedover
his veto. Some of the less charitable ones hint
that he will veto the bill because he bas sold nil of
his bonds and is not now Interested.

toe city op coi.runiA.
The bill to extend the limits of the city of Co
lombia has a section providing that an election
for Mayor and Alderman be held on the first Tnes
day of February, 1870, who shall hold their offices
! until the regular election of members of the Gen
eral Assembly In 1872. When tho bill was taken
up In the Home to-day, DeLargc moved that the
section be stricken out, arguing that to pass it
would be unwise and dangerous ; it was a politi
cal scheme to get rid of the present officers, who
;ad been fairly clotted and were entitled to hold
heir offices until their terms expired. In con
tluding his remarks, DeLargc paid a high com
pliment to the efficiency.and zeal which bad
marked the oincinl conduct of the present Mayor
and Alderman. Tonlinson and Oeo. Lee support
ed DeLarge'n motion. Nenglo nnd Purvis opposed
it. Oeo. Lee mored to amend the section by al
lowing the citizens living In that portion brought
ihto the city by the extension, to elect at the time
designated an alderman, or ns many as was re
paired to represent them. About this time a'
notion to postpono tho consideration of the bill
natu the 20th of this mouth was made and
adopted.

tools the door, and aunouueed his intention of
speaking, if necessary, until to-morrow morning,
by which lime he could get a memorial of the
citizens of Charleston protesting against the pro

and spoke in a random sort of way tor two tu.::r-?

lettrr from the acting president of the road, stat
ing lhat there was no objection to granting the

Tlie unaccustomed duties or legislating have
become wearisome to tlie members even after so
short a "spell" as they have had this season. To
day a concurrent resolution was introduced In
the Her.se providing that the ticueral Assembly
should adjourn on the cad of this month to the
II ft h or next mouth. It was passed at once with
out a dissenting vote. It Is understood that the
Scuato will fin--.-: it to-morrow with an amend
ment clause providing that the members and
senators do not receive "per diem" during the
recess.

A gentleman here has received a letter from
Senator Sawyer statius that he has every assur

Tliere has been very little tail: of the shooting
of Manie Stokes by Meadc, member or the House,
from Yot U, of which the readers of TUB Nkws have
been informed by telegraph. The atl'air lias been
hushed up :<y the payment or ' a sum
of money to the woman?how much Is not
stated. The wound was not as bad as Arst re
ported. Meade is walking about, and seems lebe
perfectly uiioppreltenslvc' of. arrest, it is stated
that the matter will lie brought to the attention
of the grand jury of the Court of ConorjL Sessions.'
which meets here In February next.
Speaking of shooting reminds mfofati affair
tjiat p?ourred the. other night at a ralr given for
the benefit or the "Republican Brass-Band." A
member was very attentive to a llght-hucd dau
BCl, and invested his per diem to supply her ap
petite, to an extent which was extravagant, to
say the least. Towards Hie close or the cuter
taiumenta page ot the Senate, who Isa shade
darker than charcoal, "walked into the airect(ons
of I he ufore-aid damsel," and completely "cut
out" tho member, who, upon hearing who was
his rival, recollected his dignity, then considered
It insulted, and then forgot It so far as to draw a
pistol aud start in pursuit ot the page; but his
benevolent intentions to deprive the State or a

who held him until he "cooled dowu."

As has been stated, Cain, colored, a short time
ago Introduced a bill providing for un appropria

for the poor. No action has been taken upon It
yet, but il is generally believed that the House
will refuse to consent to such a large appropria
tion being made.

Who shall have the power of purchasing school
books for the children of the rrcc-schools or the
Stater is a question frequently asked, but as
often unanswered. The "Kducatlonal bill" pro
vides that the State board or Kducatlon shall
have the power, but it is doubirul if the section
containing that proviso will pass. The House will
endeavor to pass an amendment providing that
there shall be a commission appointed by the
Senate and the House, whose duty It shall be to
select an?r purchase the books. Some want
the matter left entirely to the county school com
missioners, who shall select the books they deem
best adapted for the children of their respective
counties. Anticipating that this hist course
would be pursued, a Now York publishing house
sent out two ngotits who, taking different routes,
have called upon ull or nearly all of the school
eonamlssloncrs nnd, doubtless, Impressed them
with (he belter that their text books only have the
necessary requisites to train up the cducatlou or
the children In the way it should go. Another
New York house Is represented here, it Is rumor

believe has been formed to purchase the hooks of
a house or their own choosing. The combination
propose to divide the spoils?one to sell the

states that!tie swamp lands of the State com
prise more than one million or acres or almost in
exhaustible fertility, and recommends an nrenr

a bill providing tor the drainage or these swamp

a number or dtstittgiilshc l gentlemen, among

that ihe Americans, and Germans,1 and Irish had
each heard their great orators m the Academy of
.Music, and il was now the turn o:* the French.
On rising to speak, as un entering, a perfect storm
or applause greeted Father Hyacinthe, n? scout
es sensibly affected by Ihe wtirnith of this greet;
lug. A report lu one oft he New York p.tpeiri
gives ihe following description of ihe manner of
the sper.ker und the points of his discourse:

fluently from his lips, every .syllable Is distinctly

vinced me that between these two roads there Is
a third opened ror the greatest moral and religious
progress man can make, and trodden by men who
can reconcile Heaven and earth?the present lite
with a lui lire. As the first man, the work of God,
was the king, i lie owner, the manager of Eden
and till its brute Inhabitants, ho we huvc to con
tinue In these ages the,work of Adam; but In
stead of a small part "of ASIA" Minor, we have u
whole planet. God lias given us steam and elec
tricity, and distance is annihilated. The globe Is
our Eden. After tlie bist mau came family ami
society. God made Adam a companion and saved
him trum egotism. Thus was the organization of
the ramlly perfected. In modern society, celibacy
exists for the sake or Go>l-, but this exception, ir
yon make tt ni tile. Is iigalust God and against
nature. Celibacy is cowardice ir It does not glo
rify marriage. The Apostles have said marriage
Is honorable.
The great object in life is the reconciliation of
Heaveb and earth, 01 the present hie with the fu
ture, and to secure union on earth. Union in tho
city, in the nation and in humanity was the
thought of Jesus Christ, who first proclaimed that
which the prophets but dimly sow, and the Jews
never did see. The centuries that are to realize
this great union of nations have begun; ihe labor

The Now York World devotes a column to the
description or the audience and or the lecturer.
The first was by no means sectarian, representa
tives or all religious and no religions, pew-holdtrs
and speculators being mixed lu nil parts or the
crowded house. There were 2m)0 persons pres
ent. The reporter gives a description of Fnther
Hyacinthe :
He was dressed in a black suit, not or priestly
cut or dimensions, and ir not fashionable It was
at least thoroughly the dress of a gentleman of
taste, and not conformed to any of the rules or
etiquette which generally overtake speakers and
actors upon that stage. There was nothing of
ihe " persuasion" about It, and It was as far the
other way rrom the absurd extreme of full dress.
Ho stood a moment nt the tunic us the president
Introduced him. He Is a man or medium height,
solidly bullt, mid inclining to portliness, wltbjui
rugged, fleshy face. In which tho nervous billons
temperament predominates, and which, from Its
massive features and stolid expression, when at
rest, gives at the first glance an erroneous Im
pression of the man. It is the lusty organization
or Luther, rather than the utisietnlous body or
Fenelon. There is more or the "Little Corporal"
In the head than or Erasmus. It dofB not charm
you with apparent intellectuality. The moment
he speak -, a m w chnraeter comes into his race.
Tho voice Itself dispels the first Impression. It Is
the voice of kindness; one or those clear, -harp,
penetrating voices which hold all the slunk., and
half-tints, the Inflections or language in solution?
a voice warm, gent le,subdued, but woiiderfollvdls
ttnet, and with a pleasant sadness lurking In it. it
Is, too, the voice or tbcrcholar, thoroughly trained
to Ils work?no tones wasted; every word rapidly
but wholly spoken, and every sentence turned as
rhythmically as a phrase or music, and this with
out any dramatic eifort, but with a quiet earnest
ness which gives It a fresh charm. As he warms
with bis subject, bis oratory becomes u trifle more

t e expre? condition that said grantjres skull pay
t the State of South Carolina th csufn of twenty
cents per ton for every ton of phospbato rock or
phosphate deposit dug, mined, or removed from
the said navigable rivers and waters or the State.
The Phoenix correspondent remarks :
The phosphate bad of South CnroUUU Is known
to extend from the Wando River to the Savan
nah. Us value depends upon its proximity lot ho
surface, utpl the facility with which It < un be con
veyed to'navigable waters, and tlienco to the
markets of the world. Throughout the section of
the Stale between the Wando and the Savannah,
the channels of the Intervening rivers cut through
the phosphutc bed. und the phosphate, washed of
(ta earthly lneumbrance. lies at the bottom ol
or their channels, andean be lilted by dredges
and scows in aooudttton ready ror the market,
and worth. a> least, loo per cent, more than In
localities where it Is overlaid by from two to four
reel of earth, and wheru il has to go through the
manipulation Of washing machines and transpor
tation to the banks of a river. It Is worth, there
fore, on b'.ard of the scOw, at least, from six to
eight-dons*** per tou, for ft hick this hill .proposes
to pay the State twenty centiner ton. The grant
atiove proposes that thcfavoreM Individuals named
shall have the exclusive light to take the phos
phates rroru the beds or all the navigable streams
aud waters, embracing the bays and Inlets along

of surface, and each acre may be calcuihtcd on
for rrom 500 to 1000 ions of phosphate, making nn
aggregate or l.iss.ooo of ton*. Compare the dlf
ference between this Immense quantity of phos
phate at twenty cents per ton, the price proposed
to be paid to the State, and the four to six dollars
fier ton, what It Is worth to the Individuals named
n the grant. For be It recollected, that this im
